Roger's Cup Tennis - Final

Rene Johnston - Staff Photographer

The final in the Rogers Cup was both a battle of August Southern Ontario weather and International tennis. The longest two set match in my tennis history was peppered by rain and humidity on Sunday.  Things the my Canons' don't like much. Of course play is suspended in wet court condition for the pros, so we wait.  But the show rolled on and as a fellow photographer, Nathan Denette from the Canadian Press said,
 "Hey! it's not golf...if it were we would still be out there in this!"

Andy Murray was the repeat winner for the tourney, something that has not happened since Andre Agaissi days. Enjoy some extra photos from the match!.
